From when we’re young, we’re taught to be at odds with our body. We’re too tall for this, too short for that, don’t fit into this, or weigh too much for that. We have freckles we never see on the pages of magazines and cellulite we can’t bear to bare at the beach.
I’m pretty cynical and not very zen, so shifting my thinking was pretty impossible. I used to think I’d be happy once I got down to a size 2, but luckily I started learning how to appreciate my body for more than its size.
